For the first time, graduating students from the Fashion Design and Technology Degree at The Arts University Bournemouth will be exhibiting their collections on the catwalk at Free Range in London on Friday 3rd June, showcasing the innovative talents of our future designers.
Free Range is the UK?s largest graduate art and design show. Since its inception 11 years ago Free Range has become the number one platform and launch pad for the next crop of creatives to showcase their work to both public and industry.
?Season One? marks the Fashion Design and Technology course?s first catwalk venture on the national circuit. It is also significant, as it celebrates the talented collections of its first set of graduating third year students, following the extension of the FdA degree to include a top-up BA (Hons) year.
Included on the catwalk is a childswear collection ?Hangin Out? be Emily Knight; a jellyfish inspired collection ?Medusa? (left) by Ivy Santos which uses floaty, draped fabrics; a demin collection ?Amm-Nation? by Scott Curley who takes his influence from the conflict in different societies; and a collection by Rory Payne entitled ?FLESHTONE? which as Rory states is the ?…feminisation of menswear? in which he uses the principals of womenswear such as exaggerated shoulders on his menswear collection.
Sarah Charles, Course Leader for the Fashion Design and Technology Degree commented ?The future fashion designers exhibiting on the catwalk at Free Range have worked tirelessly on their collections over the past year. ?Season One? signifies the end of three hard years studying Fashion at the Arts University and signifies the start of a professional career for our enthusiastic, dedicated young individuals. We wish them all the best upon graduation.?
?Season One? takes place from 12 – 1pm on Friday 3rd June in the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London. For more information or to obtain tickets, please visit www.free-range.org.uk
